Ingredients


1 cup slices Strawberries (cut into slices)
1 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
1 avocado(s) Avocado (pitted, diced)
1/3 cup Basil, fresh (chiffonade cut)
1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 pinch Sea salt, fine
1 dash Black pepper
2 tbsp Sesame seeds (or pecans, for serving)

Instructions


1. In a small saucepan, bring the balsamic vinegar to a simmer over medium heat. Once the vinegar starts to simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 6 to 10 minutes, uncovered, until the vinegar thickens, and reduces in volume by half. Set aside.

2. Meanwhile, add the strawberries, tomatoes, avocado, and basil into a large shallow bowl.

3. Drizzle on the oil and gently toss until the veggies are coated. Season generously with salt and pepper and toss again just briefly.

4. Scatter on your desired amount of toasted seeds or nuts. Drizzle on all of the balsamic reduction.

5. Serve immediately.
